I sure hope that is down swell and down wind on an outgoing tide!

Had to start at 4:30 am. Paddled with a pair of whale sharks this AM. But now a beer in La Paz. Finished for now.

Looking back... great trip, away from it all. Loved the colors of sunup on the kayak... and thanks to the yachties for occasional water top-ups. Whale sharks near Agua Verde. Wind stayed down as I rounded the worst points... and passed the highest cliffs. Came close to misjudging the tide a couple of times, and there were days after two hours packing and getting ready I decided to stay where I was, but overall inspite of the winds and a couple of surprise downpours it was Baja wonderful.

Honestly, your 1st book Graham is one of the best I've ever read. Not just because of my interest in Baja or adventure, but you truly have a keen sense of when to reminisce & describe in detail and when to motor on. I can't wait to read the rest. Thanks for doing what you've done and sharing it with us! Gifted inspiration!
